Four storeys, two-window range. Steps up to round-arched

keystone, all probably in Coade stone; panelled reveals to
doorway, doorcase with pilasters, cornice, fanlight and
panelled door of original design; segmental-arched carriage

Coade stone, and festooned spandrels; cornice. Upper windows
flat-arched with gauged brick heads; moulded brick cornice;
parapet. Cast-iron railings to steps.
The interior has a staircase with wreathed and ramped
handrail, stick balusters and open string. The ceiling of the
